The Whitestown Post Legion baseball team got some early offense and a solid pitching performance to continue a recent hot streak.

Whitestown got both of its runs in the opening inning and Colin Skermont threw a complete game to help the team edge New Hartford Post for a 2-1 District V Legion win on Wednesday at New Hartford High School.

It is a season-best seventh consecutive win for Whitestown Post, which improves to 13-2 overall. The team remains in first place in District V with a 12-2 record.

Whitestown standout pitcher Colin Skermont scattered five hits and allowed one run — in the fifth inning — while striking out nine batters and allowing one walk in seven innings. He improves to 6-1 overall this season.

Whitestown took the lead for good in the first inning. Colin White and Ty Montrose each had RBI singles in the top of the first inning for Whitestown, which totaled six hits all on singles.

Ty Kane was also 2-for-3 in the game. Dominic Bullis went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run. Kody Czternastek added two walks and Brian Zbytniewski also had a walk.

Whitestown is set to close the regular-season with games Friday and Sunday at DeLutis Field. Whitetown is set to play Utica Post at 6 p.m. Friday and Oriskany Post at 5 p.m. Sunday.

No stats were available for New Hartford (5-9 overall), which is scheduled to end the regular-season at 6 p.m. Friday against Adrean Post at Notre Dame High School in Utica.

Ilion Post nabs five-inning win

Noah Carpenter and Nick Greene combined to throw a one-hit shutout in Ilion Post’s 11-0 District V win in five innings over Moran Post on Wednesday.

Carpenter earned the victory on the mound. The right-handed pitcher allowed one hit and no runs over four innings. He struck out three and walked one. Greene threw one inning in relief out of the bullpen, walking one and striking out three on 13 pitches.

Ilion scored six runs in the first inning. The offensive output came on an RBI single by Alan Meszler, a two-run double by Chase Regan, a two-run single by Brayton Langdon and an RBI single by Rikki Smith. 

Ilion added five more runs in the third inning that included an RBI double by Carpenter. The team scored four runs with two outs with help from two throwing errors, and RBI single by Tanner Warren, who later stole home.

Ilion finished with 12 hits, led by three from Carpenter. The team had no errors.

It was the third consecutive win for Ilion, which was scheduled to play a doubleheader against Adrean on Thursday. Details from those games were not available at press time. The team is also scheduled to play at 6 p.m. Friday against Oriskany Post at DeLutis Field in Rome.
